It is also sometimes called as sinus augmentation A sinus lift procedure is a surgery that increase bone height to the upper jaw in the area of molars and premolars. . Bone graft is added between the jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on each side of the nose To give space for the bone, the sinus membrane is moved upward, or "lifted." A sinus lift is done by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Reasons for inadequate bone in upper molar area . : Reasons for inadequate bone in upper molar area . The maxillary sinus keeps expanding with age and soon patients have little bone left above the 2 nd premolar, 1 st molar and 2 nd molar. Bone loss due to gum disease. Long term missing teeth in upper back region. : PRE OPERATIVE OPG WITH SINUS DRIFT WITH FAILED TOOTH SUPPORTED BRIDGE Sinus lift needed repeated surgeries: : Sinus lift needed repeated surgeries: Surgery for removing the bone from hip or other suitable area. Surgery for placing the bone graft. Surgery for placing the implant. Surgery to expose the implant. Bone graft failure has been common because of sinus lift complications.: Bone graft failure has been common because of sinus lift complications. Risk of tear of sinus membrane The sinus membrane may be punctured or torn. The surgeon will either stitch the sinus tear or place a patch over it. If the repair is not successful, your surgeon may stop the procedure and give the tear time to heal . The sinus lift is repeated once the membrane has healed. This usually takes a few months . Infection of the bone graft may lead to failure . On rarely the existing bone does not integrate with the bone graft material, and the grafted area does not have a blood supply. Disadvantages of sinus lift: Disadvantages of sinus lift The sinus lift procedures which delay and complicate the patient’s desire to get immediate fixed teeth . The sinus lift procedures are being replaced by pterygoid implants and basal implants. Pterygoid implants and basal implants allow immediate loading; which means that the patient can get crowns within 3 days after implant placement. INDIRECT SINUS LIFT WITH BASAL IMPLANTS WITHOUT SINUS LIFT SURGERY : INDIRECT SINUS LIFT WITH BASAL IMPLANTS WITHOUT SINUS LIFT SURGERY Time factor: : Time factor: Waiting period is more because after bone grafting implants has been placed and then after 6 months crowns will be placed Cost of sinus lift:: Cost of sinus lift: The dental implant procedure is very expensive. With the pterygoid implants and basal implants the treatment is quick and the patient get permanent teeth at an affordable price.
